Computing at Holy Trinity
"Computers are now part of everyday life. For most of us, technology is essential to our lives, at home and at work. At Holy Trinity we are committed to providing our children with the foundational skills, knowledge and understanding of computing they will need for the rest of their lives.
Our children will learn how computers and computer systems work, they will design and build programs, develop their ideas using technology and create a range of content.
We equip our children with key skills within core programs and apps such as Microsoft Office, so that they can create professional and purposeful content. All the skills we teach are transferrable to secondary school and beyond. Our very own radio station gives all of our pupils the unique opportunity to use technology to create radio shows for a worldwide audience. We use tablets to build upon the skills our children bring from home and we teach them how to use these devices across the curriculum to research, create and share content.
Finally, we teach our children to use technology responsibly and we educate them on how to use the Internet and devices positively, taking into account their own wellbeing and that of others."
